Marilyn Monroe’s Former West Hollywood Penthouse Takes Center Stage on the Market
Looking to indulge in the lap of LA luxury like a star? This West Hollywood penthouse, once home to bombshell Marilyn Monroe, has been cast onto the real estate market at the price of $2.49 million. Monroe purchased it in 1954, but her ownership was brief, living at the duplex gem for less than a year.
Elegantly, it sits atop Granville Towers, a French Normandy-style building created in 1930 by designers Leland Bryant and Samuel Coine. The pair also brought to life The Four Gables Apartments, Beau Sejour, Savoy Plaza and La Fontaine.
However, this building and unit are in a league of their own with Monroe’s legacy attached to them. Her former 2,032-square-foot penthouse features beautiful views of the mountains and city lights, seen through floor-to-ceiling skylight windows, and unique architectural elements that exude glamorous flair. The condo has just two bedrooms and two bathrooms, creating a cozy yet luxurious feel. The abundant natural light, ideal for photoshoots, might be an aspiring actor or model’s favorite part, though.
Besides its airy interiors, one can feel like an icon when using the building’s amenities such as the clubhouse, pool, spa, and romantic garden. With close proximity to Sunset Boulevard and Runyon Canyon, Hollywood’s most famous spots are at your fingertips as well.
